Directed By: Paul Greengress
Written By: Tony Gilroy and Robert Ludlum
I’ll be honest, I really didn’t put much effort into that last post. I was caught off guard a bit by how boring Supremacy was and I didn’t care enough to write much about it. This however, is a much better Jason Bourne movie. It’s interesting, faced paced, and action packed.
This movie may be better. I may like it more than the second film and maybe the most of the franchise but I don’t have much to say about it nonetheless. Matt Damon is great as Jason Bourne. Julia Stiles is again exceptionally beautiful and in an expanded role. All the old regulars are back but this time around there is no Bryan Cox to deal with, which can only make the franchise better right? David Strathairn and Albert Finney are the newcomers. Strathairn is great and Finney isn’t bad but I am not a fan of Finney. Paul Greengrass did a better job with this Bourne film but I am not really a fan of his work.
I have never read anything by Robert Ludlum but I am under the impression that the films are only loosely based on his books. This genre isn’t really my favorite but I love a good action movie and this movie is full of great action. If you watched the other Bourne movies then you will surely like this one. I think this one is as good if not better than the first film. It is worth your time and I would recommend it.
I love a good action movie and as a series I really enjoy these films. They take you on a ride and it is fun to watch. After a few though, I wish they would stop. People say they love Mission Impossible like these, but I feel like once you have made a million of them it is time to stop. Overall a really good series of films.
NEXT MOVIE: Bowling For Columbine (2002)
